Larry Meads, deputy director of Portland's parks and recreation department, has drafted a proposal for a revised dog ordinance that would require owners to leash their animals in the Western Cemetery, the only fenced-in place in Portland where dogs are allowed to go off-leash. David Eaton of the Friends of the Western Cemetery says Meads' proposed alternative to the Western Cemetery, Valley Street, is unacceptable because it is unfenced and therefore unsafe. The Friends of the Parks Commission voted unanimously to endorse the rules, which go before the city's public safety committee on January 8.
